The tiny cauldron that had been silent for a long time had spoken abruptly and revealed the origins of the charred piece of wood, and it caused Chen Xi to find it difficult to breathe while his heart couldn’t help but thump violently.
It really is true! That piece of charred wood was really formed from a strand of the Dark Parasol Divine Tree’s soul!
Chen Xi recalled in his daze that An Wei had once said that for the sake of avoiding the calamity that affected the three dimensions during the primeval times, the Dark Parasol Divine Tree that linked up the Mortal Dimension and Immortal Dimension had joined forces with a supreme being to seize a trace of a chance of survival. Even though it had perished, yet it had left behind a strand of its soul in the end.
This strand of its soul had undergone the baptism of countless years and had actually transformed into a piece of charred wood now. Moreover, a tiny verdant sapling had grown out from it, and it was already gradually recovering a trace of vitality!
“What condition?” said Chen Xi via voice transmission. After he recovered from his shock, he remembered that the tiny cauldron had said that it could help him obtain the charred piece of wood, but as the condition of exchange, Chen Xi had to agree to a condition of the tiny cauldron’s.
If it was before, Chen Xi would surely feel uncomfortable if the tiny cauldron spoke about conditions with him. But after experiencing the string of events on the Primeval Battlefield, he’d already understood the way the tiny cauldron handled things.
It was a method of doing things that maintained the balance. If Chen Xi wanted to obtain anything from it, then Chen Xi had to pay the corresponding price. Doing this was good for Chen Xi’s sake, as it would prevent the tiny cauldron’s karma bringing disaster to Chen Xi.
“Help me find a piece of Chaotic Divine Crystal.” Replied the tiny cauldron.
“Chaotic Divine Crystal?” Chen Xi was stunned, and he was slightly unable to figure out exactly what treasure it was.
“It exists within the Dark Parasol’s Abyss, and I’ll guide you to obtain it once you’ve gone in.” The tiny cauldron replied. “How about it, do you want to make this exchange?”
“Alright, I agree.” Chen Xi agreed without the slightest hesitation.
He was already intending to enter the Dark Parasol’s Abyss to temper himself and the tiny cauldron had said it would guide him to the location of the Chaotic Divine Crystal, so how could he not agree to such a simple condition?
“Wait three days for me. This strand of the Dark Parasol Divine Tree is too strong, and for the sake of avoiding any mishaps, I require three days of time to slowly subdue it.” As soon as the tiny cauldron finished speaking, in the next moment, it had already vanished swiftly from Chen Xi’s chest, and it actually didn’t cause any spatial fluctuations.
Besides Chen Xi, no one in the hall knew that at this instant, an extremely mysterious treasure had entered into the Icesoul Divine Tree.
The tiny cauldron only required an instant to annihilate those four Xeno-race experts in the Primeval Battlefield, yet never had I imagined that it would require three days instead to subdue the charred piece of wood. It’s obvious exactly how miraculous the strand of the Dark Parasol Divine Tree’s soul is… When he thought about how he would be able to obtain an unusual treasure in three days from now, Chen Xi’s heart burned and was filled with anticipation.
Batch after batch of experts arrived within the hall, causing it to seem even more bustling. There were disciples from the Immortal Sects, Devil Sects, and even the formidable beings from the various clans from the Primordial Era. Moreover, there was no lack of experts from some ancient clans that were secluded from the world.
At this moment, all these people were gathered together, and merely the aura they emitted was sufficient to shake a weak person to the point that the person’s vital energy entered into a chaotic state.
Of course, the atmosphere wasn’t as harmonious as it seemed on the surface. After all, these experts were from various different and great powers of the Dark Reverie, and some were even hostile with each other. At this moment, it was already fortunate that they didn’t draw their swords against each other while being under the same roof.
Fortunately, the Dark Parasol’s Abyss hadn’t emerged yet, otherwise, a bloody conflict would have already erupted here a long time ago.
After all, no matter if they were friend or foe, they’d come to Icesky City for the sake of the Dark Parasol’s Abyss of legend, and they would absolutely not act rashly before they entered the Dark Parasol’s Abyss and obtained the benefits within it.
But it was obvious that once they entered the Dark Parasol’s Abyss, then no matter how friendly or hostile their relationships between each other were, they would all be competitors. At that time, perhaps they would fight with their lives on the line and cause blood to flow into rivers for the sake of a treasure or a piece of fortune.
Chen Xi sat alone before the table while silently waiting for the tiny cauldron as he sized everyone within the hall up, so he didn’t feel lonely.
As for Long Zhenbei, he’d already stood up and sat before Daoist Crimson Sun’s table a long time ago, and both of them were drinking while speaking of something in low voices.
Obviously, since he was able to make Long Zhenbei take the initiative to strike up a conversation with him, no matter if it was Daoist Crimson Sun’s status or strength, it ought to not be inferior to Long Zhenbei and might even be slightly higher.
On the other hand, An Wei hadn’t returned since she left the Ice Cloud Pavilion, and it was a mystery what things she’d gone to buy. Her whereabouts were unknown, and it caused her to seem rather mysterious.
“Eh, Princess Leng Chan’er has come. Supposedly, she joined the Heavenflow Dao Sect, and she possesses an extremely great reputation amongst those of the younger generation. She’s one of the most dazzling Seed Disciples of the Heavenflow Dao Sect.”
Right at this moment, someone suddenly spoke in a low voice while looking with a burning gaze.
In next to no time, a group of people walked over, and they drew the attention of everyone within the hall.
The Heavenflow Dao Sect?
Chen Xi’s heart shook as he raised his eyes to look ever, and he saw a beautiful young woman in a luxurious robe embroidered with phoenixes walking in while being surrounded by a group of people that seemed like a host of stars who were surroundings the bright moon.
This beautiful young woman was obviously not human. Her ears were pointed while a red colored mark was present between her brows, and her eyes were actually sky blue in color, causing her to have an unusual charm.
Besides this, there wasn’t much difference between her appearance and that of a human. Her appearance was delicate and beautiful, her figure tall and slender, and her skin was supple like fat, crystalline and translucent.
This young woman obviously possessed a rather great reputation because her arrival received the attention of numerous gazes, and some people even bluntly revealed intense feelings of adoration.
But a trace of a bright light flashed within Chen Xi’s eyes instead. When the Heavenflow Dao Sect was mentioned, he thought of Qing Xiuyi, Bing Shitian, Yun Lansheng, and the others, and he recalled the bet he made with Bing Shitian in the Primeval Battlefield.
He really wanted to know Qing Xiuyi’s situation in the Heavenflow Dao Sect now, and if she still remembered him after she recovered her memories from her previous lifetimes.
The people in the surroundings of Princess Leng Chan’er were extremely formidable. Obviously, all of them were top figures in the Heavenflow Dao Sect. Their arrival naturally represented that one of the 10 great immortal sects, the Heavenflow Dao Sect, intended to have a hand in the Dark Parasol’s Abyss as well.
“Princess Leng Chan’er, I heard a peerless figure with shocking natural talent has appeared in your Heavenflow Dao Sect. Did he not come to the Icesky City? According to his character, he will surely not miss such a grand event, right?” Someone engaged in small talk with Leng Chan’er.
The hearts of many people shook as they’d similarly heard of this, and that peerless figure of the Heavenflow Dao Sect was called Yan Shisan. Supposedly, he possessed extraordinary natural talent and possessed the Firestar Body. Moreover, his character was extremely explosive, and he was madly addicted to battle. Every single time he left the sect to obtain tempering, he would challenge others everywhere, and he rarely lost to those of the same generation, causing him to be an extremely terrifying figure.
Moreover, he cultivated in the School of Fiendgod Body Refinement and had already shockingly condensed six External Avatars, and he’d always crushed his opponents and never lost.
The Heavenflow Dao Sect was a colossus that was ranked in the top three amongst the 10 great immortal sects, and its inheritance was old to the point that it could be traced back to the primeval times. Moreover, numerous great figures that shook the three dimensions had come from it, so the strengths of the disciples that were capable of obtaining its inheritance was rather outstanding.
“Senior Brother Yan will surely come,” said Leng Chan’er. Her beautiful hair hung loosely on her shoulders, and she had gorgeous brows that were black like ink. Her grin was like a flower that bloomed after the rain, delicate and charming.
The hearts of many people shook when they heard this. Obviously, they knew how formidable Yan Shisan was, or perhaps, the person they didn’t want to encounter the most was this madman that searched near and far for people to challenge.
“He’s just a boorish and irritable madman, and he’s nothing worth mentioning.” Someone spoke out abruptly with a piercingly cold voice, and it instantly caused the atmosphere in the hall to quiet down.
Someone actually dared to speak like this before Leng Chan’er and the experts of the Heavenflow Dao Sect, and he doesn’t care about Yan Shisan. Presumably, this person’s strength is surely extraordinary.
The gazes of everyone looked towards a table at the corner and a black clothed young man that sat there.
This young man had a gaunt face, and he could only be considered to be ordinary and without any special bearing. However, when he sat there all alone, he seemed like a firm and lonely rock that couldn’t be moved and deep like an abyss.
Most conspicuous of it all was there was a trace of pure devilish qi flowing on his body, and it was condensed there without dispersing while transforming into strands of black mist that enveloped his entire body, causing him to have a mysterious aura.
“The Nether Spring Devil Sect’s Qiu Jun!” Someone gasped as he recognized the origins of this person.
He was one of the most dazzling and formidable figures of the Nether Spring Devil Sect in the recent 1,000 years, and he possessed the extremely rare Thousand Severance Devilbody. If he were to continue growing, he might possibly become an exalted figure amongst devil cultivators.
The Nether Spring Devil Sect was one of the six lineages of the Devil Sect, and its strength wasn’t the slightest bit inferior to any one of the 10 great immortal sects. As a Seed Disciple of the Nether Spring Devil Sect, Qiu Jun’s strength was formidable to the extreme as well.
Besides his great origins and the Thousand Severance Devilbody he possessed, the reason he was so famous was because of his cold disposition. There were almost a thousand people that had perished at this hand, and his accomplishments in battle were shocking.
Chen Xi’s gaze similarly swept towards Qiu Jun, and then he was slightly stunned because he actually faintly sensed an aura that came from the Netherworld being emanated from Qiu Jun.
Dao Insight energies that were like the Grand Daos of Paramita and Oblivion, yet much more lacking in purity, were filled with surging devilish qi causing it to be cold and ghastly, and it caused his aura to be slightly different from the Netherworld.
While Chen Xi was sizing Qiu Jun up, Qiu Jun’s gaze actually inadvertently glanced at Chen Xi, and the corners of his mouth curled into a smile that was suffused with a deep meaning.
Hmm? This fellow seems to be paying attention and observing me as well? Chen Xi felt apprehensive in his heart and withdrew his gaze while seeming to be lost in thought. The Nether Spring Devil Sect. Could it be that the words Nether Spring are related to the journey to the afterlife in the Netherworld?
At this moment, a single sentence from Qiu Jun had caused all the experts of the Heavenflow Dao Sect to look over with hostile expressions and stare at Qiu Jun who was drinking wine by himself, and it caused the atmosphere to instantly become tense.
Qiu Jun displaying disdain towards a member of the Heavenflow Dao Sect in public was simply an undisguised provocation, and they couldn’t be blamed for revealing hostile expressions and making such reactions.
Right at this moment, the door to the hall was kicked open heavily, and a few beings with strange appearance walked in with gloomy expressions and seemed to be extremely unhappy.
At this moment, the experts of the Heavenflow Dao Sect couldn’t help but frown, whereas even Qiu Jun revealed a trace of displeasure, and both sides felt slightly irritated that they were disturbed at this moment.
But all in all, because of the appearance of these few beings, the originally tense atmosphere in the hall had been shapelessly eased up and dispersed greatly.
“That truly dampened my mood. We must bash that little girl up properly when we encounter her next!” After those beings walked into the hall, they were constantly cursing with gloomy expressions, and they entirely didn’t notice that some people within the hall carried a trace of displeasure towards their arrival.
“Hmm? There actually aren’t any seats left?” The being in the lead swept the hall with his gaze, and it quickly descended onto Chen Xi before he walked over directly and looked down at Chen Xi. “Friend, isn’t it too much of a waste that you’re occupying a table by yourself, you should give it up to us!”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
